But, just like credit cards, the bait in thosr traps is nice if you can get it without being caught (see other thread)  :y
Nope. You think you can beat them at the game, but they are still winning. They wouldn't offer the incentives if they weren't.

Cash back and points only serve to make you spend more.

As someone with a modicum of self control,  I don't suffer that issue. And the points/miles are a cross subsidy between those who pay their credit card in full every month (me) and those who don't (someone else). That is the system, and I'm using it to my advantage.

You're free to be as normally middle class as you like. I'm simply trying to get you to stop and think... ;)

Just a couple of short months until the new fancy Easter Smileys get unveiled!  :y
We have some valentines ones before the easter ones
Easter ones wont work, We wont have any World Wide Wait after Brexit, unless we start Manufacturing it Ourselves.  ::) ::)
Our main servers are in the UK, our DNS auth servers are in the UK.  Our mail servers and images servers aren't, but they aint in EU land either.  Does that count as Brexit planning on our part?

Regarding the Giulia Quadrifoglio, the sales guy said the car would (according to his research on Autotrader) lose about £13000 over the two year period of the PCP deal I was considering.

Over those same 2 years I would pay £30000 in the form of a deposit and monthly payments. Doesn't seem like a good deal to me.  :-\

I'm aware of the 'potential equity' within the car but there is no guarantee of this.

The only answer, then, is to dip your hand into your pocket and fork over £60,000. Job done, best possible deal... ;)

This is the Vauxhall Omega forum.

 Owning an Omega and having £60000 in loose change is an unlikely combination. :)

Really ?

I wouldn't call it Loose Change, but £60K is what I have available sitting in various accounts saved up for a deposit on a BTL - Includes the tax, and Fees and General TLC that will be required if we could find anything my wife actually "likes" enough to commit to taking a BTL mortgage out on.

The idea of wasting it on depreciation had fleetingly crossed my mind, but nah.

I get the impression Lord Opti has a fatal weakness for acquiring expensive new t*ts or wheels when in the vicinity of either. ::) ::) ::)

Lots of good cars out there for bargain prices Opti , £60,000 would break my heart to leave that in a supermarket car park.

Quite. I take the view that a car is possibly the worst investment it's possible to make other than just burning cash. I'm about to sell a flat in London (no mortgage). I have no intention of buying a car with the proceeds. People have different priorities, my ego is fine with a 12 year old Volvo. I probably will buy another BTL but not in London.

I have to say the Signum is superior to the Omega. I believe the Signum was designed by a team working for NASA. :) 8)

You mean that they designed the handling to be just in the sweet spot within the moon's gravitational field?

Explains a lot. ::)

I'm pretty sure the Saturn V was FWD just like the Signum. ;D

They got away with it by not flying it in close proximity to any hedges or ditches, though.
